CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Prophesy unto the wind - רוח ruach. Address thyself to the soul, and command it to enter into these well-organized bodies, that they may live.
Come from the four winds - Souls, come frown all parts where ye are scattered; and reanimate these bodies from; which ye have been so long separated.

But here רוח ruach has both of its most general meanings, wind or breath, and soul.
